Relativistic Astrophysics

Relativistic Astrophysics Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Black holes, accretion disks, gravitational radiation, inflationary models of the Universe, and the cosmic microwave background, these are just some of the exciting topics covered in this wide-ranging review of the latest research in astrophysics. This volume represents the efforts of a distinguished team of experts and provides an invaluable entry point into relativistic astrophysics for graduate students, and a timely overview for researchers.

Synopsis:

Based on a meeting to honour the pioneering work of Igor Novikov, this book presents nineteen chapters by a team of world-renowned experts. It provides researchers with a broad overview of modern relativistic astrophysics, and offers an ideal source of supplementary reading for graduate students in astrophysics, cosmology and physics.

Synopsis:

A succinct yet engaging overview of what is today one of the most active and fruitful areas of research in physics.
